I've Launched My Virtual Author Visits

Hi Everyone:
Two weeks ago I talked about my new book Nathan Blows Out the Hanukkah Candles. I am pleased to report that I just did a virtual book reading of this new title via Skype with the second grade of Congregation Beth Hatikva's Religious School, located in Summit, New Jersey. As you can see in the photos, 2nd grade teacher Danielle Weiner  held up a copy of the book as I read the story. Afterwards, the students asked me to explain what autism is. We then discussed what it would be like to have a boy like Nathan in their class and how they would befriend him. I was very impressed with their warmth and willingness to accept someone different into their midst.

I want to thank Nancy Hersh, Beth Hatikva's Educational Director, for organizing this virtual visit, sending me these photos, and reporting that "this was an experience the students won't forget."

Interested in a Virtual Visit? Read all about it and contact me. I'll be happy to book a date and meet your students.
